- Full Report:
GAO reported on the status of budget authority that the President's third special message for fiscal year 1987 proposed for rescission.
GAO found that: (1) the message proposed 73 rescissions; (2) in three instances, amounts proposed for rescission were impermissibly reimpounded; and (3) the Office of Management and Budget released all of the withheld funds for obligation. GAO identified no other information, except as noted, which would be useful to Congress in its consideration of the President's proposals.
